Serena Purple Angelonia

High heat and humidity tolerant and requiring little maintenance, the Serena Purple Angelonia is a great plant for sunny borders or containers located where they will receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. Also known as Summer Snapdragons because of their similarly shaped blooms on spikes rising above the foliage, they do not have the trademark hinge that would allow them to ‘snap’ when touched. Serena Purple can grow up to 20" tall by 14" wide and attracts butterflies and bees. Remove dead and dying flower stalks to encourage more blooms. Available here at Creekside Nursery in a 2 gallon terra cotta container.

Burgundy Sun Coleus

The Burgundy Sun Coleus is a low-maintenance annual that is highly resistant to serious disease or insect problems so it requires little or no pesticide to stay healthy. Attractive burgundy foliage displays its beautiful color from mid-spring to fall. Great in containers or planted in masses. This variety can handle full sun to moderately shady conditions and needs a well-drained soil, but their colors are most vivid in bright sun. Some gardeners leave the small flowers, but it's best to pinch them off to direct more energy into stem and foliage growth.

Rio Grande Purslane

Rio Grande Purslane is a low-growing, vigorous annual that blooms heavily in the heat of summer. We carry them in hanging baskets in a variety of colors: magenta, orange, and yellow. Compared to other varieties, the Rio Grande variety is known for its tropical look. It is a prostrate trailing annual that typically grows to 4-6" tall with a spread to 10-12" wide. By nature, Purslane is a succulent, therefore making it drought resistant and a fan of well-drained soil. Plant in a sunny spot and it will bloom all year long.
